Mast Ali

Mast Ali (born Ali Asgar Tayabi) is an Indian actor[1] and dialogue writer who is known for his Hyderabadi dialect humour. He is widely known as Saleem Pheku from the movie The Angrez.

Although he was not the lead character, many considered him to be a show stealer. He has also acted in Hyderabad Nawaabs and Hyderabadi Bakra. Moreover it was his Hyderabadi lehja (dialect) used in both the films that contributed immensely to their overall success. Few other movies in which he acted are Half Fry, Berozgaar, Hungama in Dubai and Zabardast.
